First workshops on “Strengthening civil society in the fight against corruption in Moldova” implemented

From 11–12 July, and succes­sively on the 13th and 21th, the first three workshops of IEP’s training series on “Strength­ening civil society in the fight against corruption in Moldova” were success­fully imple­mented in Chișinău. The first workshop assembled key Moldovan Civil Society Organi­za­tions (CSO) and aimed at discussing prior­ities for the fight against corruption on horizontal and sectoral level. CSO repre­sen­ta­tives were invited to share their prior­ities and build a common platform for promoting jointly identified reform measures.

The following two workshops aimed at fostering the exchange on the major corruption related obstacles in the private and in the education sector. Within these sectoral workshops, the oppor­tunity for a dialogue between civil society repre­sen­ta­tives and repre­sen­ta­tives of the public admin­is­tration was provided. This was an important step to overcome the widespread distrust on both sides and raise awareness on the major areas of concern in the respective sector.

The workshops were imple­mented in co-operation with the Institute for European Policies and Reforms (IPRE) in Chișinău.

The project is financed by the German Federal Foreign Office.
